Former Senate Majority Leader Joseph Bruno announced today that he'll officially resign on Friday. Just three weeks ago the 79-year-old lawmaker stunned when he announced he was leaving office after 32 years in the state Senate (and claimed it had nothing to do with the FBI investigation into his finances). In his statement, he mentioned how he was proud of steering projects that led to job creation and thanked his colleagues, "Now I will bring my time in public service to a conclusion. I have no regrets because this has been a great trip and it is time for me to ride off into the sunset."
